Centennial Finishes Fifth
at State 'We the People…'
Centennial High School recently finished fifth at the State finals for "We the People: the Citizen and the Constitution" competition in Sacramento. The final rankings were determined during preliminary rounds involving all 12 competing schools including Kern County's Arvin and Foothill high schools.
"Initially the students were a little disappointed about the finish, but then they realized what a rewarding experience this has been," Centennial's teacher/coach Ryan Coleman says. "Finishing second at the regional in Bakersfield and then coming to Sacramento to compete in the same building where laws are written, debated, and passed is special. Being fifth among all the great teams represented here is an honor."
